Inspired by ancient eastern cultures, the traditional Staunton chess piece design has been given an exotic Asian flavour to deliver this Mughal Aftab chess set.
The pieces are carefully handcrafted by artisans from high-quality Sheesham wood, making every piece and every set unique. The attention to detail is unmatched in other sets of this price range.
The set isn't appropriate for tournament play because it does not adhere strictly enough to the Staunton design, but enough of the design is retained to clearly distinguish between the pieces.
Size of the king: 100mm (height); 25mm (base).
Size of the pawn: 55mm (height); 20mm (base).
